About Madia Zoe
My Nutrition Journey
My journey on the road to wellness was a long and windy one that started when I was 18. Living away from home for the first time, I had developed a multitude of bad habits by the end of my freshman year at UCSB. I sought advice from medical doctors who offered me a plethora of pain-relieving pills and anti-depressants, neither of which were getting to the root cause of my health issues. Through various experiments and diet trends, I ended up back where we all started: eating whole, nutrient-dense foods in their most unrefined forms. My own personal success in reversing “incurable” health conditions led me to the desire to share this knowledge with others, which is how My Healing Habits was born.
In 2013, I started my nutrition practice in response to the overwhelming number of nutrition related health issues we are experiencing today. Autoimmune disease has skyrocketed, becoming more common than heart disease and cancer. It is apparent that we have gradually moved away from eating foods that are nourishing, and instead reach for those that are fast, cheap, and refined. Civilization today is overfed, but at the same time starving to death, nutritionally speaking.
At the end of the day, it is our habits that keep us healthy or send us on our way to illness, which is what inspired the name for my business. Feeling better is not about following a fad diet for a few weeks, it is a lifestyle change. It is my goal to provide you with the nutritional counseling you need to assess your current health situation, get back on track to feeling better, and regain optimal health.
“Madia- When I dropped in for your health class in February I had no idea I was in for a comprehensive crash-course in nutrition! Thank you for sharing the world of food choices in such a tasty and accessible way!"
"Thank you Madia! I lost 10 pounds this week, went from 223 to 213 - the most ever. I appreciate your knowledge and input."
"I reached out to Madia after years of going to different doctors, being prescribed a variety of antibiotics and still suffering from stomach problems and chronic pain. After 1 week of following her easy and delicious recipes, my stomach and joint pain was gone! I have been following her protocol for the past 3 months now and have never felt better. Additionally, I have no need for medication or caffeine due to a now abundant amount of energy."
"Knowing where my food was coming from and what went into producing it was a valuable lesson. Madia was very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with."
Habits > Genetics
The choices you make are more powerful than your genetic makeup. Every time you make the choice to eat well, to go outside, or to re-examine your thoughts, you create wellness.
